Appreciative Coaching describes an approach to coaching that is rooted in Appreciative Inquiry. At its core the Appreciative Coaching method shows individuals how to tap into their own sense of wonder and excitement about their present life and future possibilities. Rather than focusing on individuals in limited or problem-oriented ways, Appreciate Coaching guides clients through four stages—Discovery, Dream, Design, and Destiny—that inspire them to an appreciative and empowering view of themselves and their future.
This approach to leadership increases connection (to oneself and one other) and a sense of shared agency and further inspires inclusion. The author calls this state of being: "spaciousness", and it can be achieved when organisations take action based on the generative potential of what is working and what is possible, rather than on how to fix what is broken. The appreciative approach and its principles is an important way to foster the experience of, and to promote, inclusion. It further explains appreciative leadership as an inclusive process by which people come together to renew their sense of self and their relationship to one other as they co-create a shared future and commit to heartfelt actions that bring plans into realisation.
